Nakedhealth MEDISPA is registered with the Care Quality Commission and offers a minor surgery service. One of our most popular minor operations is Fat Transfers.
Fat transfer injection is a technique that transfers fat from one area of the body to another. Fat is harvested from fat rich areas such as the buttocks, thighs or abdomen, with minimal access liposuction techniques. The fat is then separated and concentrated before being injected into the areas of the face or hands requiring treatment.
Fat transferring your own fat from your abdomen to your face is a more permanent solution to volume loss as one gets older. This can be done very simply under local anaesthetic at Nakedhealth MediSpa. Once the small amount of fat is removed, a centrifuge is used to separate the viable fat cells from everything else. This is then transferred into a small syringe and through small little stab incisions under local anaesthetic it is inserted into the face.
The benefits are that this gives you much more permanent solution to your facial remodelling. The process takes longer to deliver but there are definite benefits to be had and it is worth a chat with our team here at Nakedhealth Medispa to discuss these.
Why should I consider a fat transfer?
As we all age, our bodies produce less collagen, the protein which keeps our skin plump and youthful. The skin loses its elasticity as our collagen levels deplete, causing it to wrinkle and sag. Fat transfer to face or hands is an excellent way to improve contouring and help to restore volume to the face long term and is a good alternative to filler treatments which have to be repeated every 6-9 months. Common signs of facial aging, such as sunken cheeks, eye bags, fine lines and frown lines can be successfully treated.
Why would I choose this over filler?
As mentioned above, because the cells being injected back into your body are your own, there is less chance of an adverse reaction which can be a considering for synthetic filler products. Similarly, because it is your own cells it breaks down more slowly over time, this means appointments to ‘top up’ this treatment will be fewer and farther between.
Who would be doing the procedure?
